Beginning on Monday, November 9, our strength and conditioning coach, Arlen Harris, will begin our performance program for all LHS athletes who are not currently participating in a winter sport. What is the Performance program? For those that are not familiar with it, the mission of the program is to “to develop championship caliber, multi-sport athletes with an emphasis on year-round training.”
Performance sessions will run 3:00 pm to 4:15pm, Mondays through Thursdays. It is the goal of the LHS coaching staff (all 22 sports!) that all fall and spring athletes who are not currently in-season to attend these workouts. All workouts will be designed and implemented by Coach Harris and our off-season coaches. The Lutheran High School Strength and Conditioning/Performance Program is designed to provide our student-athletes the following: a program that is committed to developing athletes into champions in their respective sports; to provide every athlete with the very best evidenced-based exercise programs; a program dedicated to improving our athletes strength, speed, agility, power, and flexibility; to develop team bonding, leadership, mental toughness, and discipline through rigorous physical and mental test; and to properly educate our athletes on the importance of rest, injury prevention, and nutrition.
To that end, the LHS performance philosophy centers on creating an atmosphere that allows each student-athlete to maximize their potential and achieve the highest level of athletic development possible while learning skills and values that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.
If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact

Our athletic policy indicates that student-athletes are not permitted to “practice” in a receiving sport (winter season) while they continue to compete in an sending sport (fall season). However, they are allowed to “attend” practices with the overlapping time. The one notable exception to this is for cheer & pom re: their competitions in late winter.
While they are not permitted to be physically active @ practices, they are permitted to be engaged mentally at practices of the receivingsport. Coaches may choose to make decisions based on the best interest of the student athletes and their programs, while viewing this through the lens of an entire athletic program.
Please be reminded that once the seasons are ended, there is a 2 day period of non-participation for any athlete whose season has just ended.
